    Default Effects w/5150 combo

    Hello,

    I'm just wondering if everyone (who has one) uses effect pedals with the 5150 combo without problem. I'm trying to use a Guyatone phaser in front, and a Boss DD-6 + Boss Chorus Ensemble in the effects loop. I don't know if it is just my ears, but these effects do not seem to come through that great when a lot of gain is being used.

    Never had a problem with mine, but I was only running a little chorus through mine. I do know that the order in which you run your time based effects can have a serious impact on your sound.

    I think i am having the same problem. i bought a boss dd-3 (delay pedal) and whenever i used the whammy with the delay it would always distort in to a horrible mess. I just sold the pedal on ebay. all i use now is a phase 90 and a chorus to lighten up the clean channel. next time im in my local guitar shop i'll try a few different pedals on the 5150 and see what happens.
